He’ll Always Be Our Baby Boy
We lost a member of our family yesterday–Baby Boy, Cindy’s family dog back in Sacramento, passed away. He had a number of health problems for more than a year…lung and heart issues.Cindy’s family adopted Baby Boy just a short time before we adopted Pom Pom–about four years ago now.
I don’t know what the first eight years of his life were like, but I know the last four were about as good as any dog on the planet has ever had. Cindy’s family took such good care of him–the dude had his own bed in every room of the house, got walked and groomed regularly, and cozied up to the warm fireplace every winter.
Baby Boy was one hell of a dog. He was one of the smartest and sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. He loved his people–just being around them all day and getting his belly rubbed. He also loved food–a lot. Baby would go to great lengths to chomp on any little morsel of food he could scrounge up…trash cans and tables were no match for Baby’s smarts. I’m pretty sure he knew how to open the fridge and make a sandwich, but he was never one to show off.
I could go on forever about this great dog. I really wish I could have been back in Sacramento to see him one last time, for one last belly rub.
